Complimentary Summer Theme T-Shirt:
Register before May 1, 2020 and receive a complimentary summer theme T-Shirt!
For most camps, this means paying the deposit and filling out the forms (including T-Shirt size) before May 1. If you don't complete the registration forms, fail to pay the deposit, or don't give us a T-Shirt size, this does not apply.

If a church pays the deposit in February but individual campers do not complete registration until after May 1, those campers will not receive a shirt.
PAYMENT POLICIES & REFUNDS
All camps require an initial, non-refundable deposit of $100 at the time of registration.
On May 1, 2020 50% of the remaining balance for your camp will be due. On June 1, 2020 the final balance will be due.
If you register on or after May 1, 2020, all prices for the summer of 2020 go up $65 from the listed price.
Mt. Cross offers a variety of payment options, including credit card, check, pay-in-full, and installments.
Regardless of how an individual chooses to pay, the amount due at time of registration is dependent upon the date of registration. If before May 1, only the deposit is required. May 1-31, an additional 50% of the camp cost is required, and June 1 or later payment must be made in full at time of registration.

If your child chooses to go home on their own decision, they are pulled for previously-planned commitments, or are sent home for disciplinary reasons, no refund or prorated price will be given.
